Discipleship Discussion Questions

These questions are designed to be personal (you and God first), relational (with another person) and intentional (putting action to words).

 

  1. How consistently do you practice the discipline of rest in your life?
  2. In what ways do you most often practice the discipline of rest?
  3. What challenges do you face with regularly practicing a discipline of rest?
  4. How could you begin to develop “pauses” in your daily life that would give God the room to refresh and renew your life?
  5. How will you begin to practice the discipline of rest in your life daily, weekly and seasonally?
